Dhoni played well no doubt. But he was dropped thrice and was clearly out when he was 21. had it not been Kedar Yadav and Kartik's blistering knock , India would have lost both matches. We have cherished Dhoni playing for India but time now to move on. He is too slow to be considered for ODIs. Remember as captain he dropped Dravid and Ganguly for same reason from Odis
Although India won the series. Look at the nervous body language of Indian they all afraid of fast bowling. Lots catch being dropped by Australian and also a run out chance. These are the factor which makes us won the series always the same may not happen. Still remember the 1992world cup in two instance India lost in close marjin one against England other one against Australia.

In numbers Dhoni gets man of the series. Thats fine. In the past two matches the key players who did the finishers job were DK and Kedar Jadhav. They were able to break the shackles and helped to bring down the asking rate at the cruicial point, which went up too high durig the final overs. Dhoni only played the second fiddle in both these matches. Give all credit to Dhoni, but do not disrgard these two players. Highlight their contributions as well for the win. Nobody hates Dhoni, but he lost his magic touch. Had it been there, the last two matches might have been finished within 45 overs. The big questions is that the way of taking the game to the end may work all the time, especially in world cup.
